Happy National Espresso Day!! And, Changes coming

November has been busy. I say that every month and every month it has been. But, November changed everything in my crafting schedule. A Muse Studio is closing. The CEO has decided to retire. I respect her decision to focus on her family and change can be good even when it's unexpected. The last day to purchase from my web store is Sunday, November 27th.

One change that's coming for me, besides not being a demo, is that I'm going to pull back and just do classes on a bi-monthly or quarterly basis. I'm not going to join another company. Instead I'm going to play with all of my stamps and products and create for the sake of creating. That's pretty awesome!

So, to get started on this new path in my creative journey,  let me share a card for National Espresso Day! (And, yes, I know these are not espresso cups).  ;)
And, here is another coffee card that I made for a friend who is fighting a personal battle. I adore this stamp from Unity.
And,  I wish for us all to be strong and courageous!

Happy stamping!

Flamingo Fun!

I made a couple of sets of Flamingo cards earlier this Fall for an order and they were just so fun! I based them off of cards I'd designed for class this summer and used all kinds of inspirational and fun quotes. Card sets are always a great hostess gift, teacher gift, neighbor gift, thank you gift or whatever. Or, they can be turned into simple banners too.

Purple Flamingos are awesome!

Pink Flamingos!!

Happy Stamping!!

Swan Song - A Muse Studio : November 27th is last day to order

Swan Song - A Muse Studio

Received news this morning that the CEO of A Muse Studio has decided to retire and focus on her family. November 27th will the last day for the company.

November 27The November Collection will be the last from A Muse Studio and it is the perfect finale!  Consultants and Customers will be able to purchase A Muse Studio products through November 27th.  At 11:59 pm on November 27th customers will no longer be able to shop on the current website.

Effective immediately, A Muse Studio will no longer accept backorders for out-of-stock items.  Any items currently on back order will ship to customers as soon as stock is replenished.

The November collection is available to view here: 

And, my online webstore is here: 

Classes: I will hold my November classes but am going to take December off. At this point, I do not plan to join another stamp company but haven't ruled out continuing classes or having special event classes, like watercolor and stamp camps and stamp-a-stack. And, this frees me up to up use any products and stamp companies in my classes so it would be fun for me to use  and share with you other stamps I've purchased over the years. :)

I'm not going to make any decisions today about the future as this is all just kind of rolling around in my head. I'm just glad we have another month with A Muse Studio as I love the products and will miss the opportunity to be part of this fun company!

Thanks for supporting my small business!
